Johnny Marr / Big Fredia / Kurt Vile at FFF Fest, 11/8/2013
Marr and his backing trio played half a dozen tunes from his excellent new album The Messenger with confidence, precision, and plenty of rock & roll energy. Even then, "The Right Thing Right," "The Crack Up," "Upstarts," and "Generate! Generate!" earned a muted response. This crowd of 20-to-40-somethings came to hear the Smiths catalog and politely tolerated tunes as strong but not as familiar as those that influenced a generation.Fun Fun Fun Fest's 2013 edition happened last weekend, as you may know. We've posted a few pictures already, but here's a full set from Friday's kickoff (11/8) including Johnny Marr, Kurt Vile, Cut Copy, Big Freedia, Thee Oh Sees, The Walkmen, Quicksand, and more.
Marr thus treated that audience to superb renditions of "Stop Me If You Think You've Heard This One Before," "There Is a Light That Never Goes Out," and "Bigmouth Strikes Again," ending, of course, with the guitar orgy of "How Soon is Now?" and a cover of "I Fought the Law" by way of the Clash. - [The Austin Chronicle]
Title Fight in Brooklyn in 2012 (more by Rebecca Reed)
We at BrooklynVegan are proud to be presenting two of the Nites shows. Our first one happens on the Thursday (11/7) at Holy Mountain Inside, headlined by rowdy punks Title Fight, who go on at 1 AM. Right before them at midnight is post-hardcore noisemakers Code Orange Kids.

Ceremony & Iceage - Chaos In Tejas @ Mohawk - 6/3/2012
I didn't make it in time to catch Thou and Give, but I did arrive just as Ceremony began their energetic set. Copenhagen's Iceage took the stage after, with Elias Bender Rønnenfelt often rolling off the stage into the crowd.
All this lead up to the reunion of the mighty Moss Icon, pictures of which are found here. More pictures of Ceremony and Iceage from the Mohawk show below...
by Andrew Sacher
LA rockers Joyce Manor are about to kick off a short southwest tour which comes to TX for four shows surrounding Chaos in Tejas. Those shows include Rubber Gloves in Denton (5/30) and the previously discussed Chaos in Tejas show at Beauty Ballroom on June 1 with No Age, Ceremony, The Young and Gun Outfit (tickets). Screaming Females were supposed to play that show too but unfortunately had to cancel. They'll follow that with another Chaos in Tejas show at Scoot Inn on June 2 with Touche Amore, Japanther, Creem, Post Teens, and Hounds of Hate. Tickets for that show are on sale now. That show is the first on a three-date run with Touche Amore, which also includes a Lubbock, TX show at Jake's on June 5.
The band released their second LP and first for Asian Man Records, Of All Things I Will Soon Grow Tired, last month. When I first wrote about that album, I mentioned it's combined approach to both emo and indie rock. I'd also like to mention that it begs for repeated listens and despite consisting of 9 songs in only 13 minutes, each track has got a hell of a lot of individuality. In addition to their trademark pop punk blasts, we're given two raw acoustic tracks, the slow-ish jam, "See How Tame I Can Be," the punky jangle pop of "Bride of Usher," and a fun, but slightly out of place cover of "Video Killed the Radio Star." If you still haven't heard the album, stream the whole thing over at Punknews.

The Young @ Bar 96 - BV-SXSW 2012 (more by Tim Griffin)
Austin's own reverb-drenched, garage punk four-piece The Young will be touring their home state throughout the next few months in support of their latest album, Dub Egg, out on May 5 via Matador Records. You can download tracks "Don't Hustle For Love" and "Why Feel Spooky?" and "Livin Free" above, and check out the cover art below. Pre-order the album here.
Their current schedule includes a trio of Austin dates. As previously mentioned, the band's set to play Red 7 opening for Frankie Rose and DIVE tonight (4/14).

Check below for a complete list of dates...
Screaming Females @ Bar 96 on 3/14 (more by Tim Griffin)
"... by the end of Screaming Females, the stage area was at capacity. The NJ 3-piece band led by pint-sized powerhouse Marissa Paternoster on guitar and vocals had the place rocking out and going nuts. The talent those three posess is truly mind-blowing, especially with a few Lone Stars in your system. I am positive that every single person at Bar 96 Wednesday night, if they weren't already, left a Screaming Females fan." [BrooklynVegan]Screaming Females, who were recently in Austin for SXSW, BrooklynVegan showcase at Bar 96 included, will be back in Austin, at the end of a tour, for a show on May 4 at Red 7 where they'll open for Tragedy (!). Criaturas are also on the bill and tickets are still on sale. Tragedy also have shows coming up in NYC and France.
You would think that maybe that show was part of Chaos in Tejas, which Screaming Females are also playing in June, but it's not. Their Chaos show happens June 1st at Beauty Ballroom with the killer lineup of No Age and Ceremony also on the bill. Tickets are still on sale for that too.
In the meantime, Screaming Female's new LP, Ugly is out TODAY (4/3) via Don Giovanni Records. Check out their new single "Expire", with an updated set of tour dates, below.
Ceremony @ Scoot Inn
Ceremony has just completed a round of dates in Austin during SXSW in celebration of Zoo, the band's latest LP out now on Matador. Check out the brand new official video for "Adult" from the record below.
The four-piece California band played the BrooklynVegan/Power of The Riff day show at Scoot Inn on Friday, 3/16, one of a select few dates for Ceremony during the festival. The Scoot Inn show was part of the "Converse/Thrasher Deathmatch", a series of day parties at the venue. Friday's day party in turn lead into our official showcase later that evening at the same venue. A full set of pictures from the day are on the way (including High on Fire) (UPDATE: More pictures posted HERE), but for now check out some shots of Code Orange Kids, Heartless, Balaclava, Trash Talk, Ceremony and Full of Hell. More of them with the new Ceremony video, below...

As discussed, BrooklynVegan & Power of the Riff will be in charge of the Friday-day show (on 3/16), which will end at 6PM and be followed with the BrooklynVegan/Power of The Riff/Thrasher official SXSW showcase at the same venue an hour later.
Our Friday night show at Scoot Inn is one of two night shows that are part of the mostly-daytime "Deathmatch.
